Final year students from BA (Hons) Television and Film Production hosted their annual graduate screening event at the BFI Southbank last Thursday night. Despite the bad timing of the tube strikes it was an exceptional success!! The show was well attended by students, staff, TVFP alumni and lots of industry guests, that filled the NFT2 125 seater cinema and The Blue Room private bar.
The work on show was diverse and of very high quality, displaying impressive production skills, technical excellence and creative artistry. The feedback from industry has been overwhelming – with all commenting on the quality of work on offer. Notable industry represented were BskyB, AVID, The Farm Group, Raw TV, ITV Productions, Evolutionary Films, Procam, Somesuch, ITTP and Creative Skillset as well as a number of freelance professionals and indie filmmakers.
As a direct response to the show TVFP have secured endorsement and a graduate prize from The Farm Group (one of Europe’s largest Post-Production facilities) and also possible job offers and internship were made on the night as well as other networking.
It was a phenomenal night, the TVFP staff are delighted for all this year’s graduates, as it really has set a high and exciting bar for the future of TVFP.
